Ford announces pricing for Limited Edition
2000 Harley-Davidson F-150


DEARBORN, Mich.,
February 25, 2000 — Ford Motor Company has announced that the
limited edition 2000 Harley-Davidson F-150 pickup truck, the first
vehicle jointly developed by the two legendary companies, will be
offered with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of
$32,995.


“The Harley-Davidson F-150 is an exciting truck designed by two
icons of the American road, reflecting the ‘Authentic American
Muscle’ tradition of both companies,” said George Magro, project
manager of the Ford and Harley-Davidson Alliance. “This is the
first of more exciting products to come,” added Magro.


Up to 7,500 of the trucks can be produced for North America at
Ford’s Ontario Truck Plant in Canada. Each will be a black
monochromatic 4×2 SuperCab pickup with distinctive Harley-Davidson
orange pinstriping, chrome grille and brightwork with a flareside
box topped by a hard shell tonneau cover. The 260 horsepower 5.4
liter TritonO V-8 single overhead cam engine powers massive
20×9-inch five-spoke chromed cast aluminum wheels and P275/45R 20
Goodyear Eagle GTII tires – the first ever 20-inch wheels on a Ford
production vehicle.



Inside, the truck features the famous look of Harley-Davidson
accessories, including a dash ornament, black leather trimmed seats
and a unique “spun metal” instrument cluster. The exhaust is a
sport-tuned SVT Lightning muffler ending in dual chrome 3-1/2-inch
“slash cut” exhaust tips. The suspension is lowered one inch and
rides on specially tuned SVT Lightning shocks.


The three available options include a six disc CD changer ($400), a
sliding rear window ($125) and an engine block heater ($90).


Ford and Harley-Davidson announced their alliance last year at
Daytona Bike Week in Daytona Beach, Florida. The two companies
unveiled the unique Harley-Davidson F-150 last August at the
Sturgis, South Dakota Rally & Races. The alliance provides the
opportunity for the two companies to jointly develop and market
exciting products, like the limited edition Harley-Davidson F-150
and a line of unique automotive accessories and apparel, available
only through Ford dealerships and www.icollection.com. The alliance
also will include celebrations of each company’s centennial in 2003.
